Canada’s health authorities are asking passengers on the WestJet flights to monitor their health for 14 days, in order to isolate themselves and inform your local public health unit if they have symptoms.

“I would like to assure residents that the risk in our community remains low at this time and we are working to identify known contacts and assess any potential health risks,” said Dr. Hamidah Meghani of the Halton Health Center in Ontario to Oakville News.
